Love renewed from love unglued

Love renewed from love unglued

Oh Babylon
the kingdom comes
upon my breast
of wakened stressful hues
imbued
with what you said
when Mars invaded
leaving lovers dry, unsated
crying at the circumstance
a comic dance where fumbling ruled
I’ll hold your tender love
unglued
inside my heart

my me is you
I’m here unclothed
climb high upon my thighs and shout
this thing called us is fate’s pure clout
achieved

but then you said you must be gone
with swords drawn strong
we swung and cut
Once heroines, now vaults sealed shut

but then a root or shoot or ray
went back to her with a simple “Hey…”

I love you like the sun, my queen
I bow to kiss your cloven toes
Come dance with me again my twin
Like lanterns, we will burn and glow

Let dear death come nobly

Let dear death come nobly

Let dear death come nobly
throwing flowers, sing the air
though grim, his visage, glowing, shouts
a devil’s trine from eyes to mouth
we bow
I’ve always been his fine handmaiden
even when I walked a child
now ethers smoke where once was her
Persephone in bridal trim
I am

Come swiftly end
let null pervade
this last dance spins
the Earth’s parade

Ritual love

Ritual love

This is the new year
We rise, two lovers as one
In the heart of the city two witches ignite
Our fires combine swirling around the town
as
lightning from Aquarius pours down
between our thighs alive with pride unkempt
The fascination of our lips
and holy days in divey places
makes the Pope proclaim a holiday
and she, the Earth beneath the sage
goes lame in ecstatic revelry
We’re whole, divided
pieces of peace unpuzzled
laughing

Take this fire
these thirteen suns!
Burn within our sacred loves
Cast a devil’s conflagration
with this hex plus hex plus one
making scenes of horrid birthing screams
We the angels tasting eden
fall back down
to Earth
engorged
Now pregnant with the silvery rope that binds us
Valentine’s day’s the hallmark of our union
Under the moon
The universe in swoon
We merge within her soft cocoon

Ode to the blood moon

Ode to the blood moon

Oh entrancing she in silver light
shines down
what dreams we see are orchestrated
by her stoic, pallid face

and in ten hours hence
a fence will rise
the earth’s girth blocks
her lover’s light
the sun

and so in trembling rage
she’ll pick a different hue
a bloody menstruation
to her face the earth will glue

Diana, Luna, Phoebe
and the million other names that I don’t know
give blessing to the ones tonight
who feast upon your crimson show

we sing, we dance, we chant
we bow to you exalted queen
please lend this solo scribe
a scrap of your immense esteem

Listening, losing, loving

Listening, losing, loving

She sits nimbly watching pixels flash
where digits of the cosmos dance
through speakers playing Debussy
while frisson sparkles through her skin
entranced at love’s pure ecstasy
and loss

Could all these homosexual affairs
with drunken, swirling crying eyes
be that which brought her here
from him to them to they to her
a love so lost that birds can’t sing
just cry

She does acupuncture on her soul
with each love lost unto the world
and so some eastern healing sage
makes plain her sullen, complex gaze
to change what once was straight
to bent

She makes me mad

She makes me mad

she makes me mad
but not the angry kind
the kind that poets muse about
and doctors can’t explain
the kind that whips my soul about
with S-shaped cracks of thunderous shout
that stab me in my core
I’m a boat without a shore
and more, I’ve lost my mind in lore
like will this union yet persist?
Good oracle there please don’t resist!
Tell my bones what futures heavens hold!
Tell my heart with burning scald
truths from some dead long-haired lord
to save me from this hex
she’s the itch that I can’t fix
oh good goddess please come quick!
